Abstract— The study aimed to determine the sensory qualities and selling price of fish balls with the different levels of seaweed (Eucheuma spinosum). Five treatments were applied in this study; Control (0 seaweed), T1 (25% seaweed), T2 (50% seaweed), T3 (75% seaweed), and T4 (100% seaweed). Experimental samples were laid out using a completely Randomized Design (CRD). Different samples were subjected to sensory evaluation and selling price determination. Results were analyzed using ANOVA and DMRT when treatments were found to be significantly different from each other. Results revealed that different combinations of fish and seaweeds significantly affected the sensory qualities of fish balls in terms of color, aroma, flavor, texture and general acceptability. The treatment with the least amount of seaweed added showed the highest sensory score in all the sensory parameters.
Keywords— Seaweed processing, fish balls, sensory evaluation, consumer acceptability.
